Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky recently filed a lawsuit, with her children Christopher and Toni also named as plaintiffs, against Dr. Robert Koblin.

Vicky made her first public comments about the lawsuit in Twitter conversations with fans, and she revealed her true goal on reforming the medical industry through the lawsuit.
